TNG commissions EMC to assess alternative power for mine

Date: Dec 22, 2017
Australian strategic metals company TNG has commissioned Energy Made Clean (EMC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Carnegie Clean Energy, to assess alternative power options for its flagship Mount Peak vanadiumtitanium-iron project, in the Northern Territory.

EMC will conduct an alternative power study to assist TNG to assess vanadium redox battery (VRB) storage technology and on-site renewable energy options for the Mount Peake mine and Darwin refinery sites. The objective of the study is to determine the viability of deploying VRB storage technology and renewable energy options to deliver a reliable and cost effective on-site energy solution. This will involve an evaluation of various renewable energy technologies as well as assessing the opportunity for funding from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (Arena).

An initial assessment by EMC has identified several viable renewable energy options, each capable of delivering clean, reliable and affordable energy to each of the TNG sites.

EMC has established a strong reputation for designing, building, owning and operating renewable energy projects since 2004. EMC’s project team has significant demonstrated experience across a range of innovative energy projects including solar photovoltaic, battery storage systems and off-grid energy systems. These projects have been delivered for a number of private and government clients. EMC designs, constructs and commissions these projects using a team of in-house engineers and construction specialists.
